I

Mrs. Margie Watson, First Grade

I graduated from National University - San Diego with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an emphasis in Elementary Education and a minor in Literature. I was an escrow officer for 10 years until I had children. I was lucky enough to have been a stay-at-home mom for the past 10 years. As soon as my kids were in school full time, I started to be a substitute teacher and help out with the lunch/yard duty program at Sacred Heart. I also have helped with a few of our fundraisers through out the year, Back to School Bash, Oktoberfest and the Father Connors Memorial Golf Tournament.

I love to spend time with my family, fishing, traveling, going to SF Giants games, 49er games and Warriors games. I am excited about this new year with my first class of first graders. They will hold a special place in my heart! I am happy to have joined the Sacred Heart Family.

Mrs. Veronica Perez, Second Grade

I graduated from Chapman University with a BS in social science. After graduation I became a substitute teacher and was soon offered my first teaching position as a kindergarten teacher at Tom Hawkins Elementary School in Tracy. I have always had a great love for children and enjoy being around them. I knew instantly that I had found my calling.  In 2005 I was fortunate enough to become a stay at home mom and for the next 11 years I was busy raising and running around my 3 children. When my oldest son started kindergarten at Sacred Heart Catholic School I knew we had found our home. It was then that I went back to my teaching roots and became a substitute teacher at Sacred Heart.  In 2016 2nd grade became available and I knew it was my time to return to the classroom full time. I am blessed beyond measure to spend my days around children. I love watching them learn and grow as individuals and I am honored to have a part in that process.

Hi.  I would like to take this time to introduce myself.  My name is Lori Costa and I will be the new third grade teacher here at Sacred Heart Catholic School.  I have been a long term substitute teacher since 2018 at Sacred Heart, as well as at Gustine Unified School District and Our Lady of Miracles School.  Before becoming a teacher, I worked in the operating room assisting surgeons in many different operations.  In my 22 years in the operating room, I also taught a surgical program. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy going to the beach, listening to music, dancing, traveling, visiting with family and friends, and keeping up with my Portuguese heritage.  I look forward to this new adventure and cannot wait to teacher your children and become a member of the Sacred Heart Catholic School family.

Mr. Kyle Roach,  Fourth Grade  
Hello! My name is Mr. Roach and I’m very excited and grateful to be a part of the Sacred Heart community. Originally from  California, I moved to Tennessee as a child when my father joined the military. Although I always felt that my heart belonged here in California, it was there that I met my wife, had two boys, developed skills as a musician, found my love for teaching, and wholly embraced my Catholic faith to find my purpose in life. Through an extensive list of events that can only be described as divine intervention, I am now able to call California home again, and I couldn’t be happier!  I knew that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in high school after performing a drum solo in a talent show. As a result, some of my peers asked me to instruct them in becoming a more adept percussionist. It was through this process that I learned how rewarding teaching can be. I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a degree in History and Education. After graduating, I taught for two years in the public school system at the high school and middle school levels. When I am not at school, I spend much of my day reading, whether it is current events or comic books with my boys. I enjoy watching a movie every now and then, even if it takes 2 or 3 sittings, playing Frisbee and sometimes brushing of f the rust behind my drum set.  I also spend time with my family whenever I can. God often reminds me how lucky I am to have them!

Mr. Ryan Toth, Fifth Grade

Hello! My name is Ryan Toth. I feel truly blessed to be called to teach at this beautiful school.  I grew up right here in our beautiful Central Valley and am very happy to be able to continue calling this beautiful agricultural landscape my home.  I live in Turlock, where I attended California State University Stanislaus to earn both my bachelor's and master's degrees.  After earning my bachelor's, I began substitute teaching for Stanislaus County.  After earning my post graduate degree, I was lucky enough to be selected to create an English learning program for a school located in Kyoto, Japan.  After teaching that course for a summer, I was hired to teach English at The Kyoto Gakuen School in Kyoto.  Upon returning home,  I began teaching college English courses, and now, surely by the grace of God, I have been fortunate enough to be called to serve at this wonderful school.

Ms. Patricia Neky, Sixth Grade

Hi! My name is Patricia Neky. I am the 6th grade teacher at Sacred Heart.

I consider myself a Californian, now that I have spent more than half of my life in this beautiful state, but I am not a native. I come from Pennsylvania where I was born and raised. After college, I taught for a few years in Central Pennsylvania. When I received a job offer to move to California, I jumped at the chance and have never regretted the move.

I spent over twenty years working in the accounting field, with ten of those years at the Modesto Bee. As the newspaper industry began to change due to the rapid advances in communication technology, I looked again to my love of teaching. have been teaching again since 1998. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom and especially, here, at Sacred Heart in Patterson. I feel privileged to share in the Spirit and love of our wonderful Catholic community!

Mr. Enrique Lopez, Seventh Grade
 

Hello! My name is Enrique Lopez. I graduated from CSU Stanislaus with a BA in Liberal Studies and a concentration in Math.  I also obtained my single subject teaching credential in Math from CSU Stanislaus.  I am a devoted Catholic and look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff at Sacred Heart Catholic School.

Ms. Stefanie Porter, Eighth Grade 
I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a Bachelor of Arts in History accompanied by a minor in Political Science in 2010. I passed my PRAXIS Exams (Principles of Learning and Teaching, U.S. and World History, and Geography) in 2010, shortly before graduating. After graduation, I applied and was accepted into the English Masters program at Austin Peay. My plan while I was in college was always to become a teacher at the middle school level. However, fate stepped in I was offered a job after graduation at the Woodward Library at Austin Peay State University. My work in an academic library was a wonderful experience. I loved working with the students and professors, but I still really wanted to be in a classroom. I consider the day I saw the ad in the Modesto Bee for a teaching position at Sacred Heart one of the best days of my life. I truly feel that teaching is a calling from God; and there in front of me, in that small ad was Him calling. I grew up in big, loving family in Columbus, Georgia, where I attended St. Anne’s-Pacelli Catholic School. My years at Pacelli gave me a true appreciation of the value of a faith-based education. I have lived in Alaska, New York, Tennessee, and I am now happy to call California my new home. I love it at Sacred Heart and look forward to teaching here for many years to come.

Mrs. Mary Ramirez ,Office Manager
I have been at Sacred Heart Catholic School 22 years. I began as a Resource Teaching Assistant due to my background with Special Education for Santa Clara County of Education. I worked with toddlers to high schoolers. Although I did not become a teacher, I was excited knowing I was still making a difference In each child’s life. I am originally from Johnston, Rhode Island but have lived in California most of my life. My husband and I decided to move from San Jose to Patterson in 1999. I am married now for 37 years and have two adult children who also attended Sacred Heart Catholic School. My daughter was married November 2021 and my son and daughter in law welcomed their first child in July 2020, my first grandchild!  My favorite summer vacation is Maui and have been fortunate enough to go very often with the entire family.
